“Food was pretty good”
Reviewed July 19, 2010

The bacon there is just awesome. I'm not much of a breakfast person because I don't eat eggs. The pastries were good. I enjoyed talking to the owner, she's very nice and helpful.

“Absolutely wonderful Sunday buffet!!! Must eat there again.”
Reviewed July 15, 2010

If you are ever in Grand Lake, CO on a Saturday or Sunday, you must eat at the Fat Cat Cafe's buffet. It is wonderfully delicious!!! The food choices are amazing. You don't know what to try it is all so good. It is a breakfast buffet with an English touch. The owner, Sally, comes from England and is a wonderful hostess. She is so welcoming and outgoing. You feel right at home. I have never seen so many desserts on a breakfast buffet!! Scones, pastries, Scotch eggs, huevos rancheros, meats, pies, cookies, fresh salsa, etc. I could go on and on with praises for the Fat Cat Cafe. Sally makes her own hot sauce and it is very delicious. I was able to buy a bottle of it. You must go early because a line will start. We got there early and had no wait. The restaurant is very small and crowded which is just part of the atmosphere.

“Very nice sunday brunch”
Reviewed July 2, 2010

We ate at the Fat Cat and had a lovely Sunday brunch w/ amazing home cooked options like fruit pies, biscuits and gravy, egg dishes, fresh fruit, etc. This all you can eat option was just what we were looking for. it's a small place and pretty crowded but a super relaxed atmosphere seemed to make it all OK.

“Best food around.”
Reviewed June 23, 2010

We finally managed to make it to the Fat Cat after 3 failed attempts on our part, but boy was it worth it. The food was excellent in generous proportions with botomless drinks, suffice to say we will be back for more.
